BEST-DRESSED: Ben Grimes and her design partner Lily Parker unveiled their first LPBG collection here Wednesday — a clutch of flirty party pieces fit for aspiring London “It” girls. “This is the dress you really wanted when you were 15 — that would make all the boys fall in love with you,” said Grimes, holding up a deep pink silk dress with a ruffled skirt and sleeves. The two friends — Grimes is a former model who appeared in the Burberry Brit fragrance campaign and on the Marc Jacobs runway, while Parker is a designer who trained at the London College of Fashion — have also created pieces including a short trouser suit in deep blue silk and a fluid, pale gold lamé jacket. The 18-piece line will wholesale from about 30 pounds, or $54, for a cream top through to 222 pounds, or $404, for a silk jumpsuit. Grimes and Parker are showing the collection to buyers this week at the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair.
